Taxiing noise measurements were performed at Atlanta Airport from December 10 to December 19, 1973. The measurement series included passby noise measurements of taxiing planes and ambient noise samples from the terminal roof and inside the terminal building. The primary purpose of these measurements was to determine whether changes in noise level result from shutting off some engines during taxiing for fuel conservation and air pollution reduction. After analysis of the noise data from this test series it was concluded that although the noise levels of individual planes on the taxiways were reduced by engine shutoff, the noise environment of the air terminal building was unaffected, because of the large distances from taxiways involved.
